Spec UPS Power Required For a Mix of Dell PowerEdge Servers

We are setting up a new office, and we have an old UPS which no longer fits our requirements. I have 3 PowerEdge 2950's, 1 PE 2850, 1 PE 1850, 2 PE SC1420, and I want to spec a UPS that can handle these and possibly 2 or 3 more servers, but I have no idea how to do this. The servers have varying number of CPUs, RAM, and some machines are up to 3 years older than our newer equipment.

How does one go about accurately calculating the correct UPS power spec?
